Transylvania Style

Even the castle at Transylvania had style. Floor to ceiling windows, quatrefoil designs on the fireplace and double candelabra iron sconces make Dracula's lair via the Universal backlot one of my favorite sets from the thirties.

Happy Halloween!

The Good Wife: As Good As It Gets

The Good Wife just gets better and better...between the acting, storyline, and sets, it is perhaps the best show on network television this season.

I have covered the CBS Sunday night mega-hit on several occasions as the set decoration has caught the eye of the home furnishings industry -- first with a furniture line from Mitchell Gold followed by a home accessories collection with Interlude Home.

I was delighted to co-host a party with Traditional Home magazine for the launch of The Good Wife's next collection with the French home accessory company Madura at their Manhattan store. Designed in collaboration with the show's set decorator Beth Kushnick, the collection includes curtains, decorative pillows and accessories (coasters, magazine racks and picture frames). Inspired by the decor of the show, it's a touch of Paris via Alicia Florrick and Lockhart /Gardner.

Here's hoping you didn't miss the season's most explosive episode this past Sunday!
